|A new Private Browsing Mode that allows you to browse without Firefox storing any traces of where youï¿½ve been - perfect for online holiday shopping! |
Is 3.1 Beta2 ushering in the death of affiliate marketing? No cookies = no refferal fees. Does the "any trace" include cookies too?

Why does the downloadable exec comes from .ru
I stopped it
does yours too come from Russia?

Not enough material to read and no feedback yet so I haven't downloaded it.
If the new version blocks affiliates by default a lot of sites will pack it in though I can't imagine Mozilla would think it's a good idea to block cookies by default. Waiting patiently to hear on the matter...

No cookies, no login on many sites requiring user accounts, so I doubt they disable it during the session, ideally they would just erase it all when the browser is closed.

So long as the affiliate code sticks when the visitors changes sites...
Clearing cookies when the browser is closed already exists so it's not the "new" they're talking about(see:tools/options/private data). I wonder how many millions of dollars that little checkbox has cost affiliates.

As per computerWorld it works as described above
I earlier mentioned a download.ru
I guess they offer a random d-load location to balance the downloads heavy traffic, the next one when I tried again was .de

I don't get what they mean about 2.x users being offered a free [developer.mozilla.org] upgrade? Is that some silly attempt at humor? Or perhaps a lame attempt at marketing?

I saw that as well. Couldn't make it make sense.

Maybe that's the next step before they offer to pay users to upgrade. ;)
Note that the upgrade choices are "Later"/ "Never"/ "Get the new version"... and that "Never" doesn't mean never.
Is it faster?

You better keep your prior version (anyway this beta won't overwrite a previous version if d-loaded in another dir/)
Reason: 3.1 has almost none of the usual plugins available such as yslow etc...
